Brock Purdy

Check out JetNation’s latest NFL Power Rankings for Week 15 of the 2023 season. Brock Purdy has the 49ers in the # 1 spot, with the Ravens and Dolphins both climbing. Who else is climbing the ranks, and who’s slipping? Find out now on JetNation.com.

1. San Francisco 49ers (11-3)
Last Week: 1
The Niners made it six straight wins on Sunday. This week’s matchup with the Ravens gives us a preview of the most probable Super Bowl matchup.

2. Baltimore Ravens (11-3)
Last Week 3
The Ravens travel to San Francisco in the driver’s seat in the AFC. The following week the Ravens host Miami. These two games could be previews of the Super Bowl and the AFC Championship.

3. Miami Dolphins (10-4)
Last Week: 5
The Dolphins host the Cowboys this week. It’s the first game Miami has had against a winning team in six weeks.

4. Dallas Cowboys (10-4)
Last Week: 2
The Cowboys traveled to Buffalo last week, but they didn’t show up at the game. Dallas had a chance to separate from Philadelphia, but it didn’t come close to happening. Miami is no easy trip.

5. Kansas City Chiefs (9-5)
Last Week: 6
The Chiefs haven’t looked like a championship caliber team in a long while. This week should be a nice tune up for Kansas City as the Raiders come to town.

6. Detroit Lions (10-4)
Last Week: 7
The Lions can clinch the division this week with a win in Minnesota. Nobody puts Detroit on the same level as the conference elites. The Lions should use that disrespect as motivation.

7. Buffalo Bills (8-6)
Last Week: 8
The Bills have figured some things out. The stretch of poor play in the middle of their schedule will put them on the road for the playoffs, but they look like they might be the class of the AFC right now.

8. Philadelphia Eagles (10-4)
Last Week: 4
The Eagles are in a tailspin. They should prevail in the division based on schedule. Philadelphia has two games with the Giants and a home matchup with the Cardinals left on the calendar. These three games should be helpful in restoring the team’s confidence.

9. Cleveland Browns (9-5)
Last Week: 9
The Browns are finding ways to win with unretired Joe Flacco at quarterback. They have more than enough defense. If Flacco and the offense can score some points, Cleveland has a puncher’s chance in the AFC.

10. Cincinnati Bengals (8-6)
Last Week: Unranked
The Bengals have won three straight the put themselves in the middle of the playoff race. A capable backup quarterback is a huge asset in today’s NFL. Qualifying for the postseason will not be easy. The Bengals face the Steelers, Chiefs, and Browns in the final weeks of the season.
28. New York Jets (5-9)
Last Week: 26
The Jets offensive line was atrocious Sunday. A college unit would have made a better showing. The team has a winnable game this week. We will see if they can come together and show some professionalism in these final weeks.
